Geologist lost ability to walk long distances after coronavirus
A Scottish woman contracted the coronavirus in March and is still suffering from the consequences. She has always been a healthy and fit person, but now she cannot walk long distances. Because of this, the woman cannot continue to work as a geologist, since her work duties involve traveling around the world.
A resident of Scotland has lost the ability to walk long distances and cannot continue to work as a geologist eight months after she contracted a coronavirus infection. This is reported by The MIrror.
Geologist Brigid Ó Dochartaigh, 47, was healthy and fit. Her work involved frequent field trips and travels to remote locations around the world. In her free time, she loved to relax in nature.
In March, O'Doherty contracted the coronavirus. Eight months after infection, she can hardly walk and is unable to cope with her work duties.
“Like most of those who have suffered from coronavirus for a long time, I have to cope with this disease at home, alone. Nobody can tell us if we will be able to recover from the illness, ”she said.
“I just want to return to my old life - to be healthy and able to work, run, swim, visit friends and family, but I am afraid of the thought that this will not happen. My employer supports me, but this cannot last forever. I don’t know what I’ll do if I don’t get well and cannot work again, ”O'Doherty said.
She decided to warn other people about the potentially devastating effects of coronavirus infection on the body.
Earlier it was reported that a resident of the English city of Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, suffered COVID-19 and urged her fellow citizens to strictly observe all precautions. Most of all, she was struck by the feeling of helplessness of doctors and patients before the disease.
